All the treatments to help you get your perfect smile

Dental Implants

If missing teeth or wearing a lose denture is causing you frustration and not obtaining your goal of a perfect smile, we can help! Dental implants work to restore not only your smile, but also your confidence. We offer a wide range of treatment options for our patients based on their individual needs. If you are a patient who has a missing tooth space and healthy surrounding teeth, a dental implant will most likely be the best option. A dental implant will give you optimum functionality as well as an aesthetic solution without compromising the surrounding teeth.
 
Dental implants are replacing the roots of a tooth with artificial ones. Today, implant techinques have allowed our office to provide for our patients a wide range of tooth replacement solutions including:
 
  • Single/Multiple Tooth Replacement - An implant can be used to replace both a lost natural tooth and its root. This can also be used as an alternative treatment instead of a bridge, to avoid adjacent teeth also needing to be crowned. The root of the implant helps to better preserve the bone and keep it healthy.
 
  • Bridge and Partial Retention -   Also, another alternative option besides a traditional fixed bridge or removable partial. Dental implants will replace both your lost, natural teeth along with some of the roots without needing support from the adjacent teeth, as it would in a traditional bridge or partial. The implant's root also helps to better preserve the bone and keep it healthy.
 
  • Upper and Lower Denture Retention - These are dentures that are implant-supported, and they tend to be more comfortable and stable than conventional dentures. They allow you to retain more natural biting and chewing capacity and because they replace some roots of your teeth, it will better preserve your bone and keep it healthy.
 
Implants are popular in dentistry because they mimick the shape and structure of the patient's natural tooth and the replacement roots are just as strong as the original tooth roots. The implant or artificial root is placed into the jawbone under local anesthesia, then allowed time to heal and integrate with the bone. Once the healing process is complete the jaw bone is now attatched to the implant. The patient then returns to the dental office where the implant is fitted with the new tooth. This procedure usually takes around 8-12 months total, but is often considered a lifelong restoration.
 
 
 
Although proper oral hygiene is always a recommendation for maintaining good dental health, it is especially important when a patient has recieved the treatment of dental implants. Bacteria can attack sensitive areas in the mouth. When teeth and gums are not properly cleaned it causes the gums to swell and the jaw bone will gradually recede. When the jaw bone recedes, it will cause the implants to weaken and eventually it could become necessary to remove the implants. Patients are advised to make visits to get cleanings atleast twice a year to ensure the health of your implants. Dental implants are known to last for decades if they are recieving the proper care.
